There’s an old saying that tells us that, ‘The only things of which we can be certain in life are “Death and Taxes”.’
Somewhere in my past, I formed the viewpoint that I wanted my life to have purpose and meaning.
For me, it is not enough to merely ‘exist’ on this planet. I want to feel that I have achieved something and left some kind of legacy for the generations that follow.
I want to be more than just a taxpayer with a headstone in the local cemetery.
That said, and without going too spiritual here, we can all say that we have achieved more than that.
We have achieved more because of our children, our families, our friends, even our enemies – we have in some way impacted on many of the people with whom we have come into contact during our lives.
One of the greatest impacts on me was when a friend of mine went to bed one night at the tender age of 47 and never woke up up.
Shayne was two months younger than me and he died in his sleep.
I realised that none of us know how long we have got on this Earth, so I vowed to make it count.
Actually it was really more of a kick up the backside to remind me that I had learned this lesson back when my first marriage broke up.
We learn a lot of lessons in life but sometimes we forget and need to be reminded.
I vowed then never to be unhappy in a boring and fulfilling job.
I also sat down and wrote my personal bucket list (things to do before you kick the bucket) and I’m working my way through my list!
I call it ‘Living the Dream’.
There’s another old saying that goes. ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’.
It is indeed through our challenges that we grow. Yet many of us never take on those challenges because of our own fears – fear of failure, fear of success, fear of being embarrassed – the list is long.
When I ran my tourism business in Perth for fourteen years, I did a lot of late night chatting with people, helping them to figure out what direction their life was taking and what they really wanted.
I realised the value of people being able to talk to someone who could actually listen to them, take an interest in them and ask them questions to help them discover the things they knew about themselves that were often hidden to the outside world.
People would come up to me and thank me for what I had said ‘the other night’ and tell me that it had changed their life.
Sometimes I didn’t even know what it was that I had said!
I think though that it was mostly about what they had thought as a result of the questions I had asked them.
In 2010 I decided that this was a means by which I could really help people, so I embarked on a course of training.
I have always been committed to a continuous improvement programme in my life – it’s what the Japanese call ‘Kaizen’, but I then spent most of 2011 cramming my brain full of coaching materials.
The full list of training I have undertaken is in my media kit, (key trainers include Tony Robbins, Jeff and Kane, Dr John Demartini Dr Sege Kahili King, to name but a few) but through 2011 to 2012 I invested over $50,000 on coaching and training courses, so that I could better serve my new clients. It’s a process of self-education and personal development to which I am committed for life.
I’m pleased and proud to say that the results have been life-changing, not only for me, but more importantly for many of my customers- see client testimonials.

The Club Red Life Coaching Programme
The Club Red Life Coaching Programme uses techniques developed by global experts on the science of mind power, including Neuro Linguistic Patterning (NLP) techniques, that can literally help you reinvent yourself to achieve more than you ever dared believe previously.
We use elements of these techniques in all of our work that helps clients to remove limiting beliefs and blindspots that may be hindering progress in their life, their work and their relationships.
We also draw on wisdom of the Ancients, such as Hawaiian Huna spiritual teachings.
Mostly though, it’s about being curious, really taking an interest in YOU and what makes you tick, then asking you good questions.
I could tell you more but I’ll save it for the course!
Remember though that even the top achievers in the world use a coach.
Purely as an example, why would the top tennis player in the world have a coach?
Answer – because the coach is not them. Therefore the coach can see things differently and ask,’Why are you throwing the ball up that way or hitting it like this?’
So too can a life coach help you uncover what you really want out of life and help you develop strategies to achieve those goals.
The fee for life coaching services is negotiable, depending on the frequency of meetings and what we agree is fair for your situation.
The easiest way to start is to get together for a chat over a cuppa and see where it goes.
Either use the contact form on this website or give us a call on Western Australia (08) 9328 2203 to set up a meeting.
Until then, never lose sight of your dreams!
